I have been dx'd by my Dr & have stared taking supplemental vit D - 50,000 iu weekly. Doing some internet searching, I see there are many symptoms I have that can be attributed to a vitamin D deficiency, including blurred vision which I have noticed over the past several months. Has anyone experienced nausea?
Not really. I was on the 50,000 for a period. On the other hand I was so very ill that I can't be sure what caused what. Nausea is so very common from my meds that I have a prescription for anti-nausea med. I suggest you report this to your physician. Something else may be going on as well.
By the way, I got down to 1000 units per day once I tested back in range. As I don't get outside and it is winter, anyway, this keeps me on the proper range. As long as I am taking sufficient calcium, that is. Karen
General tiredness, vague aches and pains and a general sense of not being well are the common symptoms of Vitamin D deficiency.
In more severe deficiency (known as osteomalacia), there may be more severe pain and also weakness.
Bones can feel painful to moderate pressure (often more noticeable in the ribs or shin bones).
It can. For a while, I was constantly nauseated everyday for no reason. I was hydrated, eating everyday, and I wasn't pregnant. I went to the Dr to get tested and they took a blood sample from me. A week later they found I was deficient in Vitamin D and that was the reason and cause of my nausea. I started taking vitamin d supplements everyday with 30 minutes of sun without sunblock and I don't feel nausea anymore.
I have a SEVERE Vitamin D deficiency, so I take 50,000 units 3 times a week. Due to a foul up at my pharmacy, I went two months without it. I was very sick and nauseous for two days, then I was finally able to take my Vitamin D. Almost like a miracle, I felt completely well today. I know that's no medical proof without recent lab tests, but it is very interesting. So, you're not the only one wondering this.
